TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [hash size=35000]
Hi, When using Hans' adaptation for typesetting bold math in a small example everything went fine. But when using it in a somewhat larger text I ran into the error: ! TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [hash size=35000]. I remember a discussion a few months ago about this problem in MikTeX. Is there any solution in MikTeX available? Thanks, Sytse

Hi,

I'm not sure how it works on MikTeX, but hash_size variable is (probably) configurable. Why don't enlarge it? I come across simmilar problems with TeX quite often. Enlarging variables helps (not always of course :) Regards, Pawe/l
As I got no solutions to this problem, my conclusion is that it is not possible to enlarge the hash size parameter in MikTeX. For serious work with ConTeXt I should therefore drop MikTeX and take e.g. the TeXLive distribution. Is this a valid conclusion? Sytse At 12/5/2003 10:43, I wrote:

No. I've successfully done this once, but then I switched over to TeXLive for other reasons. Unfortunately I don't remember any more what I did, but this old message by Hans might help (he's talking about miktex.ini file in the message, that may not be clear): http://mlarchives.mini.pw.edu.pl/ntgcontext/msg11458.html [In case I made a mess of copying the address, the message was sent by Hans Hagen on April 13, 2003, that should enable you to find it in the archives.] I know there's more useful information on the matter in the mailing list archives, but I cannot get any of the searches to work (neither in the above archives or gmane.org archives). Somebody, can this be fixed at some point??? Greetings from Finland, Mari

if the hash is indeed that small tex live is indeed the way to go, fo rinstance, in extensive cross referenced docs one easily needs lots of extra hash entries Hans
